DANCER NOMINATED FOR NJ HALL OF FAME; VOTING OPEN UNTIL JUNE 7

Link to NJ Hall of Fame Voting

MANALAPAN, NJ – April 25, 2015 – Harness racing Hall of Famer Stanley Dancer is competing for a spot in the New Jersey Hall of Fame.

Voting ends on June 7, 2015.

Dancer is a nominee in the sports category. The public may cast ballots on: njhalloffame.org/2015-nominees/

The Hall of Fame was created to “honor New Jerseyans who have made invaluable contributions.”


Stanley Dancer


Dancer, one of the premier harness drivers and trainers in North America, passed away on September 9, 2005 at the age of 78. He grew up on the family farm in New Egypt, NJ and converted it into a showcase training center called Egyptian Acres. He campaigned many of the sports greats on his way to induction into the harness racing Hall of Fame in 1969.

Dancer earned $1 million in purses in 1964, becoming the first driver to win that much in a single year, and drove Cardigan Bay, the first standardbred horse to win $1 million in career prize money. He campaigned four Hambletonian winners.

His 3,781st and final winner came in 1995, bringing his earnings as a driver to more than $28 million.

Dancer trained and driven horses won the Triple Crown three times: trotters Nevele Pride in 1968 and Super Bowl in 1972, and with Most Happy Fella in 1970.
